Hongbin is lead in ‘Only You’
According to various people involved in the entertainment industry, the 21-year-old will make his debut as a lead actor in the upcoming romantic comedy-drama.
The story draws upon various scandals within the entertainment industry. It revolves around the best idol group in the nation and a renowned actor, who has turned into a troublemaker. In the drama series, Hongbin will play the leader of a five-member idol group.
The TV personality’s casting in the drama is significant in that he has gotten a lead role in just his second drama project.

Casting of the remaining characters is still ongoing. Once the audition process is complete, the first shooting is planned.
